Stopped by the Morgantown Model Railroad Club tonight.  They have a nice layout that's underway, with a couple of nicely scenicked sections...






The layout is all HO, and has a theme as a fictitious line extending between the B&O and WM near Elkins, WV and the Ohio River.  They call it the Cumberland, Blackwater and Ohio, and they had some custom hoppers done in the line's paint scheme.



It's a logical piece of rolling stock to have, since coal is the road's primary source of revenue.



It's a pretty cool layout, with three levels in some areas.  They're real good guys, and they meet on Thursday evenings in downtown Morgantown.  My thanks to Eric for inviting me to stop in.

Good Catch, Gregg!  Not only are they all 4-4-0's, they're all the SAME 4-4-0!  The magic of digital photography!

Well, since it decided to go incognito, minus roadname or number, I couldn't tell how many there were.  :P
